"Over the past few decades, the roles women play in public life have evolved significantly, as have the pressures that come with needing to do it all, have it all, and be all things to all people. Misogyny has evolved as well, becoming in some ways more subtle and indirect. But patriarchy is still sanctioned by every institution: capitalism, government, and even--maybe especially--the church. This is perhaps the ultimate irony--that a religion based in the radical justice and liberation of Jesus' teachings has been the most complicit part of the narrative against women's equality. Pastor and blogger Erin Wathen navigates the complex layers of what it means to be a woman in our time and place--from the language that we use to the clothes that we wear to the unspoken assumptions that challenge our full personhood at every turn. Fearless and faith-based, [this book] examines the challenges to women's equality in light of our current culture and political climate and calls women and men alike to break through the barriers that hold us all back."--Page 4 of cover.
